OM Zimbabwe stopped from providing aid

By July 8, 2008

Zimbabwe (MNN) — Now that the
elections are over, aid agencies are asking Zimbabwe's government to allow them
to resume humanitarian work. 

According to Associated Press
reports, the government has not responded to requests to end a suspension that
was imposed in early June.

Operation Mobilization Zimbabwe
had to close a day-care center as well as the mobile clinic.  Food aid stopped with millions of people
dependent on the help. 

OM Zimbabwe team has a long
history in the country with a training base in Harare, the capital city. They
are currently training the Tonga church leadership and supplying Scriptures.
Most pastors have almost no training, and many do not even have a Bible in the
Tonga language.

The OM team is strengthening the
existing Tonga church and planting new churches. Ministry areas include the Field
Development team, Vital Support team, Literature team, Church Relations team,
Training team, and Evangelism Impact team.

Their program includes a
six-month training program, a one-year intensive church-planting training, and
a second year of practical church planting. Training is focused on Muslim,
urban, child, and cross-cultural evangelism.

While OM is still able to preach
the Gospel and pray, they may not help any needy person or meet in groups larger
than fifteen. The OM team just started a 21-day Daniel fast. Join them in
prayer as they ask God to intervene.
